in america as well. >> you mean that wealth and prosperity are not ultimately fulfilling, and this creates, in fact, a craving for spirituality at a certain point, that what you're saying? and this is true with muslims true? >> well, islam -- islamic teaching is balanced between the economic and the wealth and the spiritual well-being. so both have to go hand in hand. and when people focus only on the economic advancements without the spirituality islam says that will take them eventually to their own direction. >> imam, you know that as this program proceeds we're going to be talking about what the koran says about jesus. >> yes, sir. >> and i think our audience is going to be quite surprised about what the koran does say about jesus. and how much it reveres jesus, while not, of course, assuming that he is the son of god. but that he is a prophet and he is a divine prophet, if a sense without actually having divinity we'll get to that? a moment. but you see opposite a gentleman that has been sitting patiently. he's not muslim, he's christian, he's southern baptist and he's a pastor here i
as an opportunity to right size our government long-term and to reform our tax system to help america be fully competitive in this new world that we confront. with that, i just want to again conclude by thanking al and thank you were setting the right tone. you know, we've been handed a very serious responsibility. i hope history will write that we were equal to this challenge and that we produce a result that was critically important for this country. >> i've been asked by many about my participation in this group and a sight to most this could easily fall into the category that it goes unpunished. whereat about a $33 billion company, 120,000 employees with about half of those sales enough of those employees outside the u.s. so i travel a lot and i go to a lot of converging regions. one of the things i wish that there is a strong hunger to make a difference, to work hard, to create the conditions for growth and to be especially competitive with developed economies. we face a tough problem as we all say today and i think it's important to recognize that it's one that does affect our global com

right now are the problems which we in america will probably face in the not-too-distant future. those problems are massive out of control entitlement programs, enormous debt, massive deficits, and continuing big spending programs. in short, martha, they can't pay their bills. greece can't, out of money, portugal is threatened, spain is threatened, italy, austria, probably in the same boat down the road if this thing spreads. so if i may say, their writing is on our wall. now -- go ahead, sorry. martha:is -- i was just going to say, stuart, you listen to that list of countries and one could argue, you know, the united states has not been in the same category in terms of the strength of our economy as those countries for quite some time. >> oh, for a long, long time. the equation is not between uncle sam, the federal government and america and greece and portugal and spain. no, the association is with the state governments of california, new york, and new jersey. they have run out of money. they face an enormous decifit and budget crunch. they need bailouts. so there is a mirror image h

ignited a firestorm of controversy across america with copycat legislation on the way. the president put it this way -- >> you can imagine if you are hispanic-american in arizona, you're great grandparents may have been there before arizona was even a state. but now suddenly if you don't have your papers and you took your kid out to get ice cream, you're going to be harassed. that's something that could potentially happen. that's not the right way to go. >> you know, that sound bite really hit me. the magnitude of what the president just said. the president of the united states of america, just talked to people in a crowd saying you might be need something papers to stay legal in america. now the president is a constitutional scholar and a person of color. he is uniquely qualified and understands why this law is unamerican and racist. the story also has the attention of america's top law enforcement officials. he is attorney general mark holder. >> that law is an unfortunate one. i think that it is, i fear, subject to potential abuse and i'm very concerned about the wedge that it could d
believe my product was proper. >> reporter: in an interview to air on "good morning america," blankfein refused to say that goldman is being singled out. >> we surely aren't the only financial firm. and i think, in most of these markets, we were not the largest or even a large participant, compared to others. so, i can wish that the focus wasn't so disproportionately on us. but i'm not making any claims of unfairness. >> reporter: democrats had hoped that hearing would help them move ahead with financial reform. but with no republican support right now, the gop blocked a vote in the senate for the second-straight day. jeremy and vinita? >> all right. t.j. winick in washington. thanks. >>> and we'll have more from claire shipman's interview with lloyd blankfein later on "good morning america." >>> some politics now. our new poll must caused some serious concern for members of congress. 57% of voters we asked said they will look around for someone else to vote for in november. that's the lowest level of incumbent support since 1994. asked what party they will support in the fall. 48% say
have asked him if he thinks america owes reparations in the form of territory to the people of mexico. and our favorite sanctuary city, san francisco, also might lend the arizona boycotters support by joining the effort. city attorney dennis herrera recommends that the city by the bay terminate contracts with arizona businesses immediately. it's all nonsensical. look, people have a right to lodge their opposition to this and any other law they think is unfair. this is after all what hundreds of thousands did during the health care debate. but the proposed boycott of arizona is a cheap publicity stunt, not to mention illogical and counter productive. those of us who support arizona's crackdown on illegal immigration should encourage our own states to adopt similar measures. after all, if states can't help enforce the very immigration laws that congress has passed, then the concept of national sovereignty and the rule of law are totally meaningless. that's the memo. now to the top story tonight reaction. with us now is alfonzo ago glar. the executive director of the latino partnership f

[inaudible] >> instead of social security, but human wrote one of the best little polygraphs readable by almost anybody on the subject some time ago. how immediate is the problem? how urgent is that problem and what are some of the options available to cave-in person-years to come? >> well, looked at compared to some of the other contributors to growing deficits, social security may not look like a princess that, but as we look over the next half-century, as we showed, when we think about social security policy, it's clear that some significant changes are going to have to be made. those changes can be quite modest if we begin doing them now. social security saucily program, which has not been changed in significant ways over there. since night and 35 notwithstanding the fact that the demographics of the country have changed, the patterns of marriage and work have changed and income levels have changed. and i think they're about to other steps that could be taken to modernize the program and mak
and in washington. the show starts right now. >>> good afternoon. in america today, the political games continue over financial reform despite the very real effect this back and forth has on us. the senate goldman sachs hearing shining that much more light on the shenanigans that continue to this day to play out on wall street. nearly two years after the financial meltdown and subsequent an ongoing tax funded pare bailouts. both republicans and democrats are united on one front. both want to appear, appear, to be angry at the big banks. >> how much of that deal did you sell to your clients after -- >> two things i'm getting, number one, nobody's done anything wrong. this was the natural disaster like a hurricane hit. >> we're trying to hone in on why we've got so many unemployed people in my state and why so many people in missouri have lost incredible amounts of money in their pensions. >> we're learning more about goldman, that they urnled saleses people to -- that goldman was exposed to by dumping goldman's investments on to unwitting clients, that goldman in theory was paid to represent. thi
on in america, so it isn't really a choice for them, this culture. to me, the culture has to start from the top and i'm going to give you an example, and i'll be short, mr. chairman, as i always am. i was governor for eight years in west virginia and we were having unacceptably high death rates in hour mines. i decided that as chief executive, that is, c.e.o., that i would go to each of the mines where the mine inspectors would gather, after there had been a death. that had never happened before. there i was sitting, as there were trying to explain to each other what happened and who should have done what. things happened. everything was different, because the culture change took place at the top. now i'm not saying that i changed the world, but it did have an effect and that's why in a secret world it end of 35 miles of hard driving, and then a thousand to 2,000 feet underground, when only a few -- or only a few people from that state or from any state have ever been, it has to come from the top. it has to come from the top. >> mr. chairman, related to that, i have been down in an underground
and illinois to continue another campaign of sorts. selling the recovery to small town rural america, which in these parts is still hurting a little bit. at a town hall yesterday, the president avoid the goldman chaos back in washington. he didn't have any four-letter words to drop but did get in a dig at republicans who he says a are blow blocking efforts to reform banking laws. take a listen how he basically says arizona has legalized racial profiling. >> you can imagine if you are a hispanic american in arizona, your great grandparents may have been there before arizona was even a state. but now suddenly, if you don't have your papers and you took your kid out to get ice cream, you're going to be harassed. that's something that could potentially happen. that's not the right way to go. >> now, savannah, that was part of a town hall. he wasn't planning on making immigration remarks but the audience knowing it was the news decided to ask. another issue in the news though that he avoided has been goldman. all that stuff was happening yesterday. he didn't say a word about goldman. it will be

immigrants crossing from mexico and from central america. so the reality that the police officers will be given free reign to question and ask, that's racial profiling at its best. >> we've been bringing you both sides even before it became front-page news and ignited heated debate nation wide. i had the arizona lawmaker who authored the bill in the newsroom. let's do this. let's roll the portion of that interview with state senator russell pierce. >> it's outrageous that we continue to have the anarchists and the open border while phoenix has 50% of the hom sized of phoenix are committed by illegal aliens. phoenix is number two in the world in kidnappings. it's become the home invasion, carjacking and identity theft capital of the world. we're not putting up with it anymore. >> so let's focus on the concern over violence. our josh levs has a bit of a fact check. josh. >> at the time when you heard the numbers we thought we have to fact check this. of course, we do. the idea about half of the homicides in that area coming from illegal immigrants. let me go straight to the facts fo
, actually as we heard just a few weeks ago about 47% of the lowest income earners in america pay almost no tax. i think -- no income tax. they do pay significant employment taxes, social security and medicare. in fact, every american worker pays 7.5% combined social security and employment tax. income tax will vary from -- i think the average federal income tax, even people making $40,000 to $50,000 was in the 3% or 4% range, which is still three or four times what goldman sachs was paying and of course once you get to the higher levels, the federal income tax rate is somewhere -- i think the average american making more than $250,000 a year pays an average of 23%. that's just somebody making $250,000, $300,000 a year, not the billions and billions of dollars that goldman sachs has made, they pay 23% on average more than goldman sachs paid. ms. speier: thank you. i now recognize my good friend from the state of oregon, peter defazio. mr. defazio: i think the american people are a bit confused as to what's really going on here. and it's, you know, a lot like the humphrey bow gart movie,

with their money if it's backed by the taxpayers of this country. again, mr. president, america has been through financial collapses and deep economic downturns before, but we learned in the great depression, we learned. f.d.r. answered that crisis by implementing tough new regulations to stabilize the financial system, rein in risk taking and recklessness on wall street, make the economy work for ordinary americans. because of those -- those reforms made in the 1930's, we had decades of shared economic prosperity unprecedented in our nation's history. and then we threw it all overboard about ten years ago, 11 years ago. what we did in the 1930's needs to be our model. not the same, but it's a different system. it needs to be our model as we shape today's financial reform legislation. financial reform legislation ought to separate these big entities out. we can't have too big to fail. we need to have transparency. we need to stop banks from engaging in swaps and derivatives back and forth if they are backed by the fdic. now, these amendments, the cantwell amendment, the merkley amendment and oth
